Richie Sambora and Orianthi are back with their second E.P. this year. From what I understand, they have written 70 songs together and recorded 25.

Before we get to those, we have to review the 2nd E.P., ‘Making History’.
The first E.P. ‘Rise’ was not what I expected from these two at all. With both being exceptional guitar players, I was looking for a guitar based album and they did not come close to that on the first one. Thank God they redeemed themselves with this album. They brought the guitars on ‘Making History’.
With the opening track and title track “Making History” you know that they are doing what we wanted them to do. They are rocking out. The guitars on this one are exceptional with an almost Def Leppardesque sound from around the “Euphoria” era at times. The guitar solo is the best thing they have done so far and it is all what I asked for so why should I complain. Of course I have one negative on the song. The vocals aren’t the best. I feel the production is lacking (Bob Rock is the producer which is surprising).
